Pamper Me Fabulous NYC
A few weeks ago, I attended Pamper Me Fabulous. I was really happy to attend this event in New York, since I had been to one in Los Angeles before. The best part of this year’s event was that my friends could join me! As the name suggests, Pamper Me Fabulous is an event dedicated to making you feel great. As we walked in, we were greeted by friendly staff and shown around. There was so much to take in: workshops, shopping, beauty treatments, drinks, and lots of great businesses sharing information. Our first stop? A photo shoot with Windau Photography.
Jörg, the photographer, had great energy and made us laugh. Posing for a shoot can be sort of intimidating – it’s difficult to know what to do and how it makes you look. Jörg made it fun, giving us ideas and told jokes. It took the pressure off, and we just had fun. Plus, the photos came out great!
Our next stop was to grab a drink. Godiva was making the most delicious cocktails mixed with Qream. Qream was created by rapper Pharell Williams (who I totally LOVE!!). Available in strawberry or peach, this first of its kind liqueur can be served on the rocks, mixed for cocktails or deliciously baked into cupcakes, pastries and more. Paired with Godiva’s raspberry chocolate vodka, we could have stayed all day lapping up the delicious infusion. I now know what to bring to any party!
After our drinks, we did some shopping. Stella & Dot was there, with some really beautiful jewelry and accessories. Stella & Dot is a social selling business. You can join their team as a stylist and host your own parties. It’s a business that prides itself on creating women entrepreneurs. The company has been wildly successful, and it’s easy to see why. Their products and website are GORGEOUS. My pick was the Pegasus necklace. So elegant.
Snacks were everywhere, and my favorite were the offerings from The Five Almonds. Candy-coverd almonds are a favorite of mine. But I have never seen – or tasted – the variety of flavors offered by The Five Almonds.
Rose, pistachio, white chocolate, hazelnut, lavender, orange peel – the list went on and on, each more delicious than previous.
But the vendor that really captured my heart was Satya Jewelry. This Eastern-inspired jewelry line dresses up mala beads, good luck charms, and healing stones so you can wear them all the time – not just to yoga class. They explain the meaning of the gemstones and auspicious symbols – much like the Rubin Museum. Plus, they donate to charities around the world.
I got the Arm Yourself bracelet. It has a beautiful golden moon with a black silk cord . Since it’s adjustable, it can be placed around your wrist, bicep, or even ankle. I loved the versatility. The proceeds of this bracelet help to feed, educate, and house a child for one day at the Manjushree Orphanage. This is a home to almost 200 children on the boarder of India and Tibet. How could I resist?
